So much has happened since I last wrote about same-sex marriage.
Maine made it legal through legislation, and then the electorate voted it down in a referendum in November.
Here in New Jersey, there was a serious attempt to get a bill on the governor's desk before the desk changed from being Governor Corzine's to seating Governor Christie on January 19th, 2010. It has seemingly ended in defeat. (Thank you, Senate President Codey, for putting it to a vote after both branches refused to step up to the plate. The bill lost in the Senate 20-14.) New Jersey remains a place where though same-sex couples can join in Civil Unions, none dare call it marriage.
That same week, Portugal brought a law into the parliament allowing marriage for gay and lesbian couples. It still must be reviewed, voted on in the parliament and signed by the president, but reports sound optimistic.
Here's the current list, I believe:
This does not include states or countries that offer a Civil Union, or recognize marriages performed in other states or countries.
